The elderly lady who attended us was the wife of the son of the original owner and planter of much of the garden as we understood it. They are lovely and there are a number of pathways thru out with a man made stream too. She right away invited us into her home and showed us an overview of the... More

As keen gardeners we made a special trip to see this garden - there was no-one there we got as far as the lawn and decided this was not worth €6 and left. I have many friends with bigger more beautiful gardens than this and I don't pay €6 to walk in it.

Beautiful Gardens with nice view and friendly hosts. This wouldn't be our typical attraction to visit but it was nearby so we gave it a look. We spent an enjoyable 40 minutes hear strolling around these residential gardens. Great selection of rare plants and flowers in a beautiful location. The couple who ran the place were very friendly and capable... More

Had the most memorable day at Knockpatrick gardens with Tim and Helen O'Brien. We stopped by the gardens on our first full day in Ireland after my sister read a great review on the DiscoverIreland website. We spent about two hours touring the magnificent and diverse gardens. Tim was extremely knowledgeable about all the plants and his passion for the... More

23/10/15 We were probably the last visitors of the season to Knockpatrick Gardens. We had a wonderful welcome from the owners Tim and Helen and enjoyed a lovely cup of coffee before we wandered around the gardens. It looked lovely all the beautiful plants and shrubs and we will be going back in the summer to view the wonderful garden... More

I got a very warm welcome from the proprietors - Tim & Helen O'Brien who gave me a wonderful educational tour of their beautiful gardens. Such an array of flowers, plants, shrubs and trees. The Magnolias, azaleas and rhododendrons were just amazing. Can't wait to go back. It is a must if you are in this area.

We visited Knockpatrick Gardens on Friday Oct 7th last. Our group of 20 adult learners from VTOS set out walking from Shanagolden to Knockpatrick. We received a warm welcome form the proprietors at the gate. Tim and Helen O'Brien have an encyclopedic knowledge of gardening in Ireland and had an array of magnolias, hydrangeas and azaleas. The guided tour of... More

With so much natural beauty all around you, it may be difficult to find time to visit Knockpatrick separately. Can be skipped, if you are short on time.

Give this a skip. Nothing much to see. Overpriced at 6 euro. Very little colour. Some exotic plants. Needs regular weeding and some more help with design. Might be better in summer time.
